There are some really interesting comments to this. I like having some chunks of potato in the soup, so I think I'd try to alter the process to allow some chopped potato pieces to be left intact. When you make this, do you peel the potatoes first or just leave the skins on? My preference is for leaving the skins on whenever possible. The suggestions of using Cream of Celery or vegetable broth also sound like they would be worth trying.

Does anyone know if you can freeze the left overs?

Yes of course you can freeze leftovers The main thing you need to worry about is make sure that the item has cooled and is not hot or warm when you put it in the freezer However I wouldnt keep soups in the freezer for very long depending on how they are packaged but best to be eaten within a month for me You can freeze ANY leftover If you chose to reheat in the microwave most people screwup food using ther microwave b c they heat it for too long I've found that heating in the microwave should be done in - minute increments depending on if the item is thawed or frozen If iot is frozen it can be more then a minute if it is thawed do it in minute increments until its warm to your taste The longer you cook in microwave the more it dries outRead More Shrimp fish should be reheated in the oven for best taste

It was excellent.But I used veg. both instead of Chicken.I used half&half instead of milk.(creamer)also I make cream of mushroomsoup that way. D.Lucas

You would also be surprised by using Cream of Celkery soup. I know it sounds weird and I always thought it was too, but the taste is great. My ex wife used to cook our chicken and then lay into a baking dish and make a Cream of Celery gravy to poor over the chicken and let bake in the oven for another 20-30 minutes, Wow, what a dish.

Speedy, that sounds like a good dinner! And easy with little mess to clean up! That's my kind of cooking! I usually use half and half when I want an extra rich soup to show off at a potluck, lol, but I'm fine with using whole milk.

sorry for typos- Cream of Celery
